Yep, Twiggy.

She is now doing a big poster ad campaign for Marks and Spencers. Still looks bloody gorgeous.

im listening to Gary Hoey's version of "wipe out" right now. It's not half bad, not bad at all.

Ex Go Go Belinda Carlisle did a damned fine cover of Freda Payne's 1970 smash Band of Gold - in fact, Payne liked Carlisle's treatment so much she recorded a duet of the piece with Carlisle.

Bonnie Bramlet did a great cover of Janis Joplin's Piece o' My Heart, and Joplin's Summertime was an outstanding rendition of Gershwin's oft-covered Porgy and Bess signature tune.

The Isley Brothers did a version of "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" that was pretty fantastic.

Yep. The Charlie Rich one. They slowed it down and gave it a funkier slant.

EWF did the Beatles "Got to Get You Into My Life".
Stevie Wonder did a nice cover of "We Can Work It Out" too.

Holly Cole's cover of the Beatles' 'I'm only sleeping' is sublime.
